French electronica musician David Grellier is the man behind College. The College album 'Northern Council' was originally released in 2011. This an LP of different shades - at times 'Northern Council' is dark, brooding and reminiscent of John Carpenter soundtracks, while other points are brighter and poppier, recalling the ‘Drive’ soundtrack (to which Grellier contributed) and early Daft Punk.
As a squelching pool of nostalgic synthwork, College's third full-length album - Shanghai - is an enriching building block on top of an already sprawling collection. Inspired by the city itself, this gold-pressed LP is an offering absorbed in mystery and a perfect homage to one of the world's most intriguing cities.
Here we have Teenage Color by College. Pop-music history has many cases of people dining out on a single notorious song for life...but now the Invada label are releasing the French Producer's debut album and EP after that Real Hero song caught that relentless wave off the back of the movie Drive. The man is in love with creamy 80s synths and 4/4 beats...its an effective formula. Striking pop-art artwork, too. On CD and vinyl.
